About the PRC
The Population Research Center is an interdisciplinary research unit of the University of Texas at Austin that provides support for population-related research projects at UT. Faculty researchers come from departments all across campus. Our researchers' projects focus primarily on health disparities, parenting, partnering and human development, educational inequality and opportunity, and socioeconomic inequality and work.
